action on their own, which seems like wise advice. joining me is pete williams. this is a big development. what's the latest? >> reporter: it is a big development. the pictures don't show crystal clear view of the faces, of course. there's pictures that the fbi has not released. as you noted, they do believe they have images showing the man in the white hat, planting the second bomb, in the one in front of the restaurant. by the way, we have seen that picture from our affiliate whdh in boston that shows the garbage bag next to the mailbox. they say that this is now that that is not the bomb. that the bomb was planted on the other side of that barrier. it's right near there, but just on the other side. in the release of these pictures, then, they have chosen which they think will be most helpful to people in being able to recognize themment granted, the faces are never crystal clear but they hope the totality of the clothes and what they were doing and where they were will cause people to call in. they are getting the response they asked for or getting a response, any way. a lot of names.

that debris. let's go to pete williams. with a good afternoon to you, pete, let's talk first about the status of the charges in this case and what the likely charges will be. >> yes, i think the odds are pretty good that we'll see these charges in the next couple of hours. they're putting the final touches on them now. and we expect to learn a little more about what the fbi has assembled based on its investigation of the bombing. so perhaps there will be some new details that we'll get. in terms of the charges, i would think at the very least they'll charge him with the bombing, with a terrorism offense for that. and interestingly enough, under the federal statutes, which apply here, use of a weapon of mass destruction, which is the federal law version of what a bomb is, if death results, then that is a capital offense. the government could seek the death penalty. massachusetts is a state that does not have the death penalty. so the only death-eligible charge here would be the federal offense, even though four people were killed, the government alleges, the three victims of the. bog and the c

how to proceed. matt? >> pete williams, thank you very much. edward davis, commissioner of the boston police department, joins us now. commissioner, nice to see you. good morning. >> good morning, matt. >> you've got a suspect in the hospital in critical, but stable, condition. unable to speak, but answering preliminary questions in writing. based on those early answers, are you 100% confident there is no future or further threat to boston in terms of accomplices or unexploded devices? >> this is very early in the investigation. we're satisfied that the two main actors, the people that were committing the damage out there, have been either captured or killed. there's still an open question as to exactly what happened in this investigation and there are enormous investigative resources being poured into that right now. we can't say with 100% certainty that -- anything actually at this point. >> do you know if this suspect has in any way given any indication of what the motive was for these attacks? >> no. it would be impossible for me to discuss anything about the suspect or the invest
